Tieguanyin's anti-aging effect

Some scientific studies at home and abroad have shown that human aging is related to the excessive oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids in the body. The excessive oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids is related to the action of free radicals. Free radicals with high chemical activity can over-oxidize unsaturated fatty acids, cause cell function to mutate or decline, cause tissue proliferation and necrosis, and cause deadly diseases. Excessive oxidation of lipids is the devil of human health, but the culprit is free radicals. As long as the free radicals are removed, the cells can be normally grown and healthy and longevity.

In general, commonly used antioxidants are vitamin c and vitamin e, which are effective in preventing excessive oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids. Japanese researchers have shown that polyphenols in tieguanyin, tea polyphenols, have strong antioxidant and physiological activities and are free radical scavengers for human body. According to research by relevant departments, the efficacy of 1 mg of tea polyphenols to remove excess free radicals harmful to human body is equivalent to 9 micrograms of superoxide dismutase (sod), which is much higher than other similar substances. Tea polyphenols block lipid peroxidation and scavenge active enzymes. According to the results of the japanese okuda tuoyong test, it was confirmed that the anti-aging effect of tea polyphenols was 18 times stronger than that of vitamin e.
